Biola’s engineering physics program provides you the best of both worlds: an education taught from a Christian worldview and a second engineering degree from a top-tier university in the field.
The Alton and Lydia Lim Center for Science, Technology and Health will offer students innovative laboratories, cutting edge equipment and research opportunities.
You will be required to take a Chemistry and/or Physics Placement exam.
The Science Department suggests an SAT Math score of at least 500 (or ACT equivalent) to pursue this major. Deficiencies can be fulfilled with permission from the Department of Chemistry, Physics and Engineering.
Engineering is the practical application of scientific knowledge to improve people’s lives. Through Biola's engineering physics program, which includes a partnership with the University of Southern California, students receive two baccalaureate degrees — an engineering physics degree from Biola, and an engineering degree from USC or another accredited university. These two degrees will prepare students for careers in a wide range of industries and government agencies.
In addition to its strong curriculum, expert faculty members and biblical integration, Biola’s engineering physics program offers several key advantages:
The first three years of the engineering physics program will be spent at Biola, studying physics, chemistry, mathematics, biblical studies and the liberal arts — all from a Christian worldview. The following two years will be spent at the University of Southern California or another accredited engineering school. At the end of this five-year program, students will earn a B.S. in engineering physics from Biola and a B.S. degree in the field of engineering chosen by the student. Degrees include:
Biola’s engineering physics program will equip students with foundational knowledge in a wide range of real-world topics, preparing them to excel in graduate school and their professional careers. Students will learn about present-day topics such as:
Many career opportunities in government agencies, national research laboratories, education, aerospace and nuclear science await future graduates of Biola's engineering physics program. As a well-prepared scientist, you can expect to impact the world for Jesus Christ as a scientific entrepreneur or through rewarding professions such as:
Biola engineering physics graduates and graduate candidates have participated in life-changing internships and engineering projects and have gone on to prestigious graduate schools. Highlights include:
